The goal of this project was to explore security features encountered while browsing the Internet, and to test people's knowledge of them. We chose this subject due to security issues of online commerce. Our research yielded that encryption based on the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) was most widely used. A survey, administered to college students, found that only half were well informed. This leaves a large population to be educated in order to feel comfortable engaging in online commerce.
